Multi-Millionaire actress Gwyneth Paltrow has made some Mums this morning a little annoyed (yes I am talking about myself!) with some recent comments.
Miss Paltrow, who won an Oscar for her role in Shakespeare in Love, said she cooks for her husband, Coldplay star Chris Martin, and bathes their children, Apple, 7, and Moses, 5. She rises at 7am and works on her website and cookery books while her children are at school, before preparing dinner for her husband when he returns from work to their £6 million home in London.
Gwyneth, 39, told Harper’s Bazaar magazine: “I have little kids in school. I want to maintain my marriage and my family, so I have to be here when he (Martin) comes home.”
The super glamorous actress is telling women who want a family to stay at home. Ummm ok I wish it was this simple Gwyneth, but its not! I would love to live in a 6 million pound mansion in a fantastic part of London, with a husband and not having to work, but this is not the reality of nearly every Mum in the world! I understand Miss Paltrow has worked hard to get where she has and can therefore now afford to stay at home, but as a single Mum with no steady income coming in every month I find her comments a little ridiculous.
Miss Perfect Paltrow we love you but before you open your mouth next time, please think about the 99% of other Mums who does not live a Hollywood style life.
